I'm so old I remember when NATO was obsolete

I mean it's really pretty astonishing, when you think about it. How did he even do that with NATO?

“I said it was obsolete; it’s no longer obsolete,” Mr. Trump said, standing beside Mr. Stoltenberg.
Mr. Trump attributed his change of heart to unspecified transformations within NATO, which he said were a direct response to criticism he had leveled that the alliance was not doing enough to combat terrorism.
“I complained about that a long time ago,” Mr. Trump said, “and they changed.”
It was not clear what the president was referring to; NATO forces have been fighting alongside the United States in Afghanistan for more than a decade, an effort focused on combating terrorist groups including the Taliban.
Perhaps he has a working time machine. He started using it modestly, tripping back just a few months to create all those jobs he didn't create, then headed out to mid-2014 to stop the Chinese authorities from their dastardly mucking with the value of the renminbi, and then finally, when he'd really mastered the technique, made the 15-year journey needed to get NATO to de-obsolesce itself. Getting back to 2017 in time to try doing some currency manipulation himself, just for the hell of it, before getting back to Florida for a long paschal weekend.
